Thousands filled the streets of Langley for the annual Cruise-In

Updated: Attendance up at this year’s Good Times Cruise-In

Thousands fill the street of Langley City for annual event

  • Sep. 12, 2015 1:00 p.m.



The first visitors to the Langley Good Times Cruise-In arrived around 3 a.m. Saturday.

That’s when two determined fans of In-N-Out burgers got in line at the hamburger chain’s community event food truck in the Cascades Casino parking lot.

At 8 a.m. the pair collected their tickets and got in line for burgers.

It took just over two hours for In-N-Out to sell out.

Organizers said attendance was up from last year, with as many as 100,000 visitors and 1,148 vehicles.

About 200 volunteers worked on the annual non-profit Langley City event.

Cruise-In society board secretary-treasurer Wayne Patterson said once all the expenses and donations have been calculated this year’s event would likely raise more than the $60,453 in money collected for local charities last year.

It was the first year of the by-invitation Rokstad Power custom car showcase, featuring the “Rivision,” a customized Buick Riveria that won the coveted Ridler award at the 2014 Detroit Autorama.

The Sunday swap meet drew a record response. Initial estimates put attendance at between 10,000 and 15,000 people.
